I am constantly amazed at how fast time is flying by. Especially now that I have children. It is incredibly hard for me because my oldest son will be registering for kindergarten soon...Where has the time gone? It was not too long ago that I was up all night with him just about every night for two years and working at a job outside of the home. How I wished for some rest...Then it happened, the night his new baby brother came home from the hospital (which happened to be my oldest birthday) he slept through the night and has been ever since. Now, how I miss that time together. Each phase that he has gone through up until now...how I miss it. My mother often tells me how each phase will soon pass and how it does.


Since I was able to stay at home since my oldest was about 1 1/2 he was getting very attached and we knew this time of starting kindergarten was soon approaching we enrolled him in a pre-k program at a local church. I had a very hard time letting go but he loves it and we did not have to prepare him at all. He visited once and loved it. Granted it is only 3 days a week for 4 hours, I wonder how he will adjust to kindergarten.

How have you prepared your child as well as yourself for starting kindergarten?

yeah...we totally went through this last year when our first went to Kindegarten...such a weird feeling to kind of let him go a bit. He needed it though and loves school...I'm kind of looking forward to all day 1st grade next year ;)

I feel your pain preparing for and then leaving them in the class on their first day when they look so nervous is so very hard to do.

One thing I did was I bought a locket for my daughter and a "magic" coin for my son. As a family we put all of our love into them and made wishes on them. If they felt nervous or worried at school they were too touch those items and it would bring them good luck.

Jennifer,
That is a great idea! I just might do that.
